A growing church in New Market, AL has grown from a small building of seven members to one the prominent Baptist churches in North Alabama. They originally built a static HTML website in 2000 and was looking to update their site to grow with their congregation. This is when we stepped in.
The static site was your typical HTML based website with a few div tags and containers. The look was branded to their colors and it had minimal integration. They laid out the goal to implement online tithing, setup and connect to social media, post sermons online, information about their ministry, pray request, newsletters and more.
We turned to using the original branding of the church and developed a WordPress based site configured specifically for a church. We configured a calendar for events, implemented a backend feature where sermons are posted that visitors can listen to past messages, suggested a tithing platform (EasyTithe) and added information about their ever growing ministries.
Since the launch of the site, they have had a growth in visitors to the site ranging in the 300 – 400 range a month and even as high as 2000. The website has given them an avenue to manage their digital efforts in a more efficient manner. After a successful launch of the website, we have now built a mobile app that is available on iOS and Android and completed a full rebranding campaign that includes a Corporate Branding Guide, new logo and optimized for Social Media. We will be rebranding the website in Q1 of 2018 with the mobile app to follow and implementing a email marketing campaign to successfully manage their church newsletter.
